Is snoring the sign of a deep-sleep state or it is an ominous warning something is wrong?
Do people know they snore? I have been accused of snoring but then I realize the person accusing me is only hearing her own snoring! At least that’s what I think I think. It’s hard to know what’s happening when you’re asleep.
I have a friend who had to move because the guy in the apartment next
to his had such a loud snore it kept my friend up all night.
At one time in America, snoring was Cartoon Funny and was indicated
with a trail of “Zzzzzz”s coming out of the mouth.
Today, the ”
Zzzzzz”s seem to have lost their humor and have been replaced with CPAP machines
and Breathe Right Strips.
Is this change in the cultural acceptability of snoring genuine in its
intent or is it merely an attempt by the medical community to fund
sleep study programs and sell breathing equipment?
